whatever happened to all those lads who took the piss out of boro in the seventies/early eighties? i remember the vauxies from sunderland and just about every village/town in durham represented, also shields, jarrow, hebburn and other tyneside based nutters. there was 50 seater coaches from all over the place all full of proper lads and drunk blokes. have they all just stopped going or grown out of it. i know footballs changed but the young pups following on don't seem capable in anyway whatsoever of doing what the previous generation did. any visit away to boro was looked forward to with relish and the home games at roker were usually a massacre when they did turn up. might be wrong but has our fanbase changed that much, they all still come from the same areas.
